Proposal: IMSS for domestic workers in CDMX

In Mexico, approximately 2.4 million Mexicans are engaged in domestic work, according to data from the National Occupation and Employment Survey (ENOE); Of which, 97% do not have a health service, if we add that 95% are women and earn between one or two minimum wages, we will understand that it is necessary to have a health service like the IMSS.

Among the various proposals offered by candidates for the head of government of the CDMX, Salomón Chertorivski, former Secretary of Economic Development, proposes to facilitate the employers the registration in the IMSS of their workers.

Likewise, Chertorivski proposes to create a Work Agency through which these people are trained, and thus create a standard that protects them and works as a guarantee to their employers.

Previously, the organization Impunidad Cero presented the investigation "Discrimination and violence against domestic workers in Mexico", carried out by María Elisa Franco, which showed that 90 percent of the people dedicated to work in the home lack a work contract.

Therefore, the study researcher asked the Mexican government to ratify Convention 189 of the International Labor Organization (ILO), which recognizes decent work in this sector.

In addition, among its proposals are also: Implement a subnational development bank, savings bank, infrastructure funds, a project bank and other financing alternatives of its own.
